Descripton: Polish minelayer ORP Gryf was the Polish Navy’s biggest and most powerfully armed ship, yet in 1939 it was left behind as unsuitable for oceangoing operations from British ports. During the 1939 Polish campaign Gryf only once put to sea to lay mines and then was bombed by Stukas in Gdynia.
